Sasha Banks will face the NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai on night one of NXT Great American Bash.
After Io thwarted the victory celebration, Sasha Banks and Bayley when they defeated Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart, Sasha Banks have decided to challenge the NXT Women's Champion to a non-title match on the July 1st episode of NXT.
Sasha and Bayley made the challenge in a video released on Twitter.
"Io Shirai, you thought it would be a good idea to ruin our return?! To ruin our NXT return, the return that the NXT universe has waited literally years for and ruin our victory and ruin the Bayley celebration week? Are you freaking kidding me, Io Shirai?!" Bayley began, before Sasha picked up the promo. "Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are coming out and saying that this is your NXT, Io?! Ding dong. There would be no NX without Bayley and I. So what do you say at the Great American Bash this Wednesday me and you, one on one. Because rent's due, booboo, and it's time to collect."
A short time later, Shirai would respond and NXT General Manager William Regal would make the match official.
It seems the past and the present are in conflict once again and the #WWENXT Universe will have the pleasure of seeing it happen. It is OFFICIAL.— William Regal (@RealKingRegal) June 27, 2020
